AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - BSA Home Care and Compassion Home Care have announced the merger of the two services effective Monday.
The merger came after BSA started looking for a partner who provides a full time home health care service. BSA's home care program started in 1996 and has since become heavily regulated and a highly specialized service line.
"Compassion shares BSA's commitment to serve the residents in the service area with patient-centered, quality care in the comfort of their home," Compassion Home Care Administrator Dana Madison said. "Compassion is one of only two 4-star rated home health agencies in the Amarillo/Canyon area, as rated by Medicare."
Compassion Home Care will operate the merged home care agency, and BSA will remain as a partner. Many BSA Home Care employees will transition to positions within BSA Compassion Home Care, while others have elected to take open positions within the BSA system.
Employee transition will continue over the next several months.
"Our two agencies are striving to make the transition process as smooth as possible for our staff and our patients," BSA President and CEO Bob Williams said. "BSA understands the importance of quality home health care so that our patients make a safe and successful transition back to their home. BSA believes that Compassion has demonstrated that it can provide this service, and we look forward to working together as a partner."
